bikeCascabel Motorcycle Group announces to all its members that this year their annual ride will be dedicated to Fundacion Autismo Aruba (FAA) Aruba Autism Foundation. According to Mr. Kenneth Rasmijn, spokesperson for Cascabel, every year the proceeds of the ride are donated to a charity organization. This year the beneficiary will be FAA.
